A Zambian NGO, Reformed Communities (REC) says the continued dependence on donor funding in HIV and AIDS projects could throw the fight against the pandemic in disarray.
Reformed Communities (REC) coordinator, Deliah Kaweche, says there is a need to source local resources for the fight against HIV andAIDS instead of relying on funding from donors.
Kaweche states that it is time Zambian NGOs dealing in HIV and AIDS started engaging themselves in income-generating ventures to avoid set-backs once the donors withdrew. In the same vein, she argues that HIV and AIDS projects must be sustainable so that there is continued support to HIVand AIDS patients.
